The clock is, obviously, ticking on the NFL's labor situation. Friday afternoon an update is expected from the NFL and NFLPA, who are meeting in a theoretically final day of mediation in Washington, D.C. today.

Multiple reports -- from both Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network and Gary Myers of the New York Daily News -- indicate that the owners are about to give one more proposal to the union. Myers calls it a "revised proposal" and LaCanfora echoes that sentiment but also adds that it is "likely a final one."

In other words, if the NFLPA feels that whatever is offered by the league doesn't adequately indicate their willingness to concede certain issues, it could mean that the union will proceed with decertification.

Alternately, the owners' proposal could, potentially, be seen by the union as an indication that they're willing to find some common ground. That would mean the likelihood of a CBA extension past Friday would increase substantially.

The best guess is a coin flip, though, because reports from Friday's labor talk indicate a less negative tone at the bargaining table, but Thursday evening, as we noted earlier, was enough of a PR mess that it drained most of the optimism out of any possibility for a successful conclusion to the talks.

Daniel Kaplan of the Sports Business Journal also reports that the owners made "revised offers on core issues this morning" -- that means that they likely changed their stance on some combination of the rookie wage scale, revenue sharing and an 18-game schedule.

Time will tell, however, if it's enough of a change to warrant the two sides considering an extension past Friday.

Report: NFL gave 'revised' proposal on Friday

I don't care if the owners are billionaires....

Hey, Kevin Mawae!!!

Until you pledge $700M to buy a team and contribute another $200M towards a stadium, you can just shut your f'ing mouth!!

From what I saw on ESPN a couple days ago, the 2009 CBA allocated $4.1B of the $9B to the players. The owners offered for this deal, $4.3B - an INCREASE - not taking away... the NFLPA wants $5B of the $9B.. Who are the ones misleading who??

There's no way I will support seeing anymore increase towards revenue for players. Bernard Berrian ripped off the Vikings for about $4M a year.. For what???? Now he should get $5M to be a piece of crap??

And players?? You know why TV creates so much revenue?

It's not because Arnold Schwartzenegger likes watching Terrell Owens play football. It's because he was the best WR available to fill on his fantasy football team.

Yes, that's right... Fantasy Football drives your sport... After all, how many of us have thrown the remote when a tackle-eligible TD pass was thrown, and it cost our first-round running back draft pick a touchdown??

And Tom Brady..... how much money does Robert Kraft make off your endorsements? You were the 199th players selected.. YOUR coaches and your owner helped make you a better football player, by giving you the opportunity, and they helped you make millions of $$$..

And for all the non-Tom Brady players...  Don't you realize that by creating a rookie salary cap, you WILL be making more?

And besides.... I want to see the owners take away $1B....

Maybe we would get better effort out of some of you guys who are just there to cash a check and start your music career, or drop $100K on a party - Bryant McKinnie... maybe we would get better effort as you guys are fighting to keep your jobs.. maybe, just maybe, we would all then have a better product to watch..

Blow it out your butts, players...

You fail to consider that so many cities,( read taxpayers ),  around the country pay for a new stadium and then  the owners end up with parking concessions, or food concessions, TV rights... or whatever.  And the players get their "huge million dollar paychecks" for an average of a little over THREE YEARS,  that's 3 years.  And in ten years the owner can sell his team and make hundreds of millions.  Players give up bodies for this league. Owners rake in the cash.  Player gets hurt = player gets CUT.  Who has the advantage here?
Don't be blinded by the contracts that the mega players get. Sure, Payton gets his 20 mil  but McNabb Signs for 20 mil and then gets cut. advantage owners.  always.   as another commenter said in the thread... "can't wait to see the scabs play".  the owners will hire truck drivers, the TV stations will broadcast it,  some of us will watch it,  and the OWNERS will keep on cashing checks. 

signed.. "Fairbomber"

GREED GREED GREED. Seriously, an extra billion is like 31 million per team. Not alot when you think about a billion dollar stadium and a 20 to 30 million signing bonus. The owners should be able to stack cash as well. I am sure Jerry Jones is having trouble filling up that 50 milion dollar jet of his. Bring on the scabs, I love watching a bunch of idiots running around every once in awhile. The last scab games were like 81 or 83 (i don't remember). JP Losman to Peter Warrick in the next SB, let's roll!

While I would hate to see a lockout, I do understand that the owners are the one's with all the money.  NFLPA, understand that if the owners are not there to sign your outragious checks, there is NO GAME OF FOOTBALL.  You are already making more than any other profession in this country, so quit bitchin and sign the deal that will still pay you millions.

Dude the article talked about this possibly and substancially increasing the likelihood of an extension of talks...

"Alternately, the owners' proposal could, potentially, be seen by the union as an indication that they're willing to find some common ground. That would mean the likelihood of a CBA extension past Friday would increase substantially."

But as Darren Rovel said on twitter, it takes about 10 minutes to reach tentative terms on a new deal. So it's not out of the question!/darrenrovell/status/46031030188130

Please, owners...lock them out and teach these greedy players a lesson.
Take all the time you need to right the league, I as a fan will be more likely to be here when that is done than if you cave to these idiots that think they are partners in the NFL, and willing to risk the livelyhood of all the NFL and it's employees, and vendors to satify their greed...
